Seeking info on Monocacy bridge at Bella Vista Dr.

Gadfly:

Just discovered your site. The bridge spanning Monacacy Creek at Bella Vista Dr (next to Scholls produce stand) is soon to be closed to vehicles. It’s more than 100 years old, and its concrete abutments are in excellent condition. It will make a great addition to the trail system along the creek, as it has been used by bikers and walkers for generations. It needs to be certified as sound for pedestrians. Maybe needs some strengthening. Definitely needs some railings for safety. Possible historical significance as a crossing dating back to George Washington.

Any advice/guidance would be appreciated. Thanks.
